In an interview with the Miami Herald, Ken Kennedy talks about still not being healthy from a shoulder injury he suffered over 8 months ago. To read the entire interview, visit MiamiHerald.com.
“I’m going to find out from Dr. Andrews if that’s going to be a permanent thing, and I’ll have to deal with it, or if there’s something more that we can do.” said Kennedy. “I don’t want to do that. I’d rather be 100 percent, but you got to do what you got to do in this business because the bottom line is this business is going to keep rolling with or without me. I’d rather be a part of it and contribute. I think I have a lot to contribute because there are a lot of things that I have yet to accomplish that nobody really has seen out of me.”
Kennedy, who is still seen by many as one of WWE’s brightest future stars, is anxious to get back into the ring and prove what he can do. “I just want to get back in there and get after it — win some championships, main event at WrestleMania. I say it year after year after year. If it takes me 10 years to do it, I’m going to do it.”
If Kennedy’s in-ring career continues to be plagued by injuries and he’s not able to realize his true in-ring potential, he had plans to stay in the business and contribute in other meaningful ways. “I was a personal trainer, when I was in the real world,” he said. “I’ve always enjoyed helping people along and passing what knowledge I have onto other people. I’d like to help out, give back to the younger generation coming up. I shouldn’t talk like that now because I’m relatively young myself [33 years old], but I know I’m not getting any younger. So I see myself stepping in a role like that.”
